Technology has changed life. Tire cleaning in the traditional mode is very troublesome, but since the advent of laser cleaning machines, the work of tire cleaning has become easy, simple and convenient. The mold is an important tool used in the tire vulcanization process, and the mold is inevitably polluted by the comprehensive deposition of rubber, compounding agents and release agents used in the vulcanization process (the main pollutants are sulfides, inorganic oxides , silicone oil, carbon black, etc.), repeated use will cause some patterns to pollute the dead zone. Therefore, the mold must be cleaned regularly to ensure the cleanliness of its surface.
Two types of traditional cleaning methods for tire molds:
1.Mechanical cleaning method
Using manual abrasive cloth or steel wire physical grinding and dry sandblasting, different combinations can be selected according to needs.
- A mature technology widely adopted by the tire industry.
- Simple and easy to operate, low requirements for equipment and tools, etc.
- It will cause mechanical damage to the mold and shorten the life of the mold
- Sandblasting is easy to block the exhaust holes of the mold, and it takes a lot of work to clear the exhaust holes after sandblasting.
- High labor intensity and long cleaning cycle
2.Chemical cleaning method
Chemical cleaning methods mainly include: organic solvent method, melting method, acid cleaning method, alkali cleaning method, etc.
easy to use, low cost
Long-term use of the above method will cause mold corrosion, which directly affects the appearance and quality of the product. At the same time, these pharmaceutical raw materials pollute the environment and damage the health of operators. Complete labor protection measures and pollutant treatment equipment must be provided.
Fiber laser cleaning machine is a high-tech product for metal surface cleaning. It is easy to install, auto-focus, and simple to operate. It is cleaning without chemical reagents, media, dust and water; it has small size, high speed, high precision and stability. Good and other characteristics, the comprehensive indicators have reached the leading level.
